Experience environmental noise as touch and gain new awareness.
Feel sound on your skin
Buzz captures the sound around you and translates it into
rich vibrational patterns.
Catch alarm clocks, doorbells, dogs barking, and the rest of the noise in your environment.
Feel voices, laughter, a family member entering the room, a baby crying, or a friend calling your name.
Feel every beat of music and movies with an emotionally powerful, immersive experience.
Buzz can detect emergency sounds such as smoke alarms, sirens, and cars honking.
Developed by leading neuroscientists, crafted by designers, and backed by Silicon Valley.
It’s as simple as learning to recognize patterns
When we become fluent in a language, learn to ride a bike, or refine our golf swing, we form associations with patterns of information from our physical world. Buzz is a wearable device that captures sound and translates it into vibrational patterns on the skin. With practice, these associations become automatic and a new sense is born. You’ll experience the difference on the first day you wear it. And it only gets better from there.

When someone was saying my name to get my attention I was able to recognize the rhythmic vibration and knew someone was calling my name.Isaac W.
Buzz alerted me that the water was running. I always accidentally leave it running. It’s those little things and the seemingly little ways that Buzz has enhanced my awareness.Sharif R.
It helps me a lot when I’m outside. If there is a siren, police car, or whatever, I can be aware and look around me.Phillip S.

Rest easy knowing that only loud, emergency sounds will alert you. Don’t worry, the algorithm filters out snoring and sheet rustling so you can catch your zzz’s.
